of people turning out to cast their ballots in the morning. voters told us, when the computers went down, that made the delays and confusion even worse. >> some of the machines were broken down. they lost half the machines. >> reporter: then there were inconveniences for seniors and the disabled. some waited outside because they did not know they could wait inside. here in northwest washington, we heard reports of people standing in these lines for as long as three hours. >> i've been voting here for 25, 30 years and i've never seen lines like this. never. >> reporter: later in the afternoon, many of the lines were gone. like here at the boys and girls club in laurel. >> it wasn't too long. it was worth the wait. >> reporter: he said it shows residents are dedicated to making their vote count. >> clearly there is frustration. the good and the bad. people are coming out and coming out in record numbers. >> polls close here in maryland at 8:00. reporting live from green belt. news4. >> thank you. >>> it is a cold day and night for all those voters standing in those lines outside the pollin
49% to 38%. that's well within the margin of error. newt gingrich joins us. before we talk about those, dixville and about 59 men's? >> it's great. it's the american drama. after all the talk, all the ads, all the upon -- ponficating, the american people get to tell us. >> we will get to new hampshire in a second. new national policy just in, gov. romney up by one. i mean, it's tied. do these national polls mean anything right now or should we be focusing on these state by state? >> i don't think anything means anything you can reeye on. there are two alternative universes out there. if you believe, as one national poll did two days ago, that there is going to be an 11% more democratic voting base, they got to a tie between romney and obama by saying it will the democrats 1 is% more likely to vote. that's higher than 2008. that's in conceivable. you have to wonder where their brain was at. on the other hand, if you believe as i do, as a lot of other key players do that the energy, the enthusiasm, the drive is on the romney side, i'll give you one example. they are talking about d

. >> how much of a driver is this u.s. senate race going on between tim kaine and george allen in virginia going to be right now? early on, we're talked about whether the presidential race was going to affect the senate race. is the vice-versa happening here? >> and if barack obama -- i think tim kaine is running ahead of barack obama in virginia. he has coattails. if romney wins virginia and wins it by two or three points, i think george allen goes with him and i think there is a possibility of ticket splitting by virtue of the fact that you might have people voting for romney and cane. i will repeat the line that brian moran uses. it's the chairman of the democratic party in virginia. it's relevant to this. you find me one obama-allen voter. they don't exist. >> in less than an hour, they'll come to a close. >> thank you. >>> both vice presidential candidates cast their ballots. paul ryan voted in janesville, wisconsin. ryan and his wife went together with the kids to the polling like. after filling out his ballot, it was back to campaigning and ryan appeared in many places, including cl

best do that in the u.s. senate right now? i thought about that with my wife and children, and they have been such wonderful supporters, and i realize there is a gridlock. we cannot allow it to continue. we cannot have the nation we want if senate and congress is gridlock. i decided my experience as a tough times mayor and governor were an experience i could bring to the table to make good things happened in partnership with others. that was 19 months ago. we have trouble more than 60,000 miles. we have recruited more than 50,000 donors, including a deer i hit and killed, so we gave up a windshield process required and in the process. this campaign has taught me now more than ever we need people who know how to be partners rather than just partisans. we are americans but virginians furs. i learn this when i was the mayor. we knew who the democrats and republicans were. we were bipartisan. as a mayor, we were able to build schools common on -- to build schools, to cut crime, to clean up the river, and we did it by working together. as governor, you get a four-year term. min
, there will be a bullet in the back of the head of our republic. that will finish us. >> we have some votes to switch to the popular vote system but now we have the opposite position. the caller points to how the electoral college came into being. the framers really did not -- were not very wary of the national popular vote and wanted to fashion a compromise between people who supported that and people who wanted the congress to elect a president. this was kind of seemed as a compromise between the two positions. host: has there been an effort to change the way we things we do things, as far as the alleged role college is concerned? guest: to my knowledge, a last effort to abolish that was 1979. it came far short of the two- thirds majority to clear a constitutional amendment in the senate. that happened three years after the 1976 election, which was a lot closer than most remember. there were 20 states between jimmy carter and gerald ford that were decide within five points. as hard as that is to imagine today in this era of 849 twin states. in the house, there was a vote in 1969 to abolish the a lo
on why they vote the way they are. martha maccallum will cover that for us. >> reporter: they are analyzing the response as they come out of the polling places tonight. there are key states like ohio and virginia. the polls are still open for hours as people come home from work and continue to vote. so many areas we haven't heard from yet. what we can tell you for sure so far is that this is a very tight race tonight. let's start with the national poll question. direction of the country. are we on the right track or the wrong track? it's evenly divided. those saying we are on the right direction and going for president obama, no surprise there. 52%, though, say we are headed in the wrong direction. they are backing governor romney. now voters are split on whether the economy is getting better or worse. huge question tonight for everyone, of course. you have about four out of ten states getting better. three of ten say it's getting worse. three of ten says it stays the same for them. slightly more voters think governor romney would hand the economy better. slightly more v
today is i think those of us who are democrats, and i am, would be having a much calmer day if it wasn't for our concerns about voter suppression. the only way that they win if they win is going to be because we've had voters standing in line for seven or eight hours in florida. we've had the secretary of state of ohio making last-minute decisions that are very questionable. you know, i heard our colleague andrea mitchell today call these lines to vote a poll tax and that's what we should all be talking about. if it was not for their efforts to suppress our vote, we would be sipping tea and talking about cricket today, but these things concern me and i think we're going to have a conversation after, i hope, the president is re-elected about how to guarantee people equal protection of their voting rights. >> it is absolutely staggering. joining us now is professor michael eric dyson who is in chicago. professor dyson, messrs. romney and ryan suggest re-electing the president will threaten the judeo-christian foundations of america, as you know, but isn't the truth that if we don't re-el
confidence that the votes are there for us to win. we have a great organization, unbelievable volunteers. i think it is as good of a grass-roots organization as we have ever seen in politics. i hope people do not sit on the sidelines. >> would you do something differently? >> i think overall we have brought a race that i can be proud of. obviously, -- we have run a race that i can be proud of. obviously, i should of had a few more cups of coffee before the first debate. other than that, i feel very good about the work that we have done. >> is this going to be over tonight? >> one way or another, we will have a winner. it may spill into the morning but i am pretty confident. >> it is unusual to hear the president himself pushed this message. it was to make sure that if you are in line at the precinct, and the polls close, stay there. urging people to bring their ideas to help -- husky -- housekeeping items. this is how concerned they are despite that confidence that you heard. >> mitt romney and paul ryan had a last-minute campaign blitz as well. ryan spun by virginia before he heads to bost
not have... things can change in a day. president bush left us in a very very bad position, so things cannot change in a day. so that's why i'm giving president obama another chance. >> we do have a business and it does seem to have picked up a little bit. not great, but a little bit. >> tom: coming into election day, governor romney has been leading president obama in the latest miami herald statewide florida polls by about six points. that's because of growing support for governor romney in central florida and northern florida, areas with housing markets still struggling and with unemployment rates generally above the national average. >> susie: that's really fascinating, tom, sort of like the tale of two cities. what about south florida, what about voters in the rest of florida? >> tom: south florida is an interesting case, the housing bust certainly happened here in miami in south florida. but thanks to foreign buyers coming back in, the housing market has stablized faster than in the rest of florida, and prices are actually on the rise again. that has helped bring up the unemploy
wisconsin. we'll win this election. we'll finish what we started. we'll renew the bond that binds us together. we'll reaffirm the spirit that makes the united states of america the greatest nation on earth. god bless you. god bless the united states of america. >> cenk: he sounds like he's in round 12. but all of a sudden in the national polls, which romney had been leading the popular vote switched around. president bush now up 48%-47%. this thing is so close and it's within the margin of error. you don't know who is going to win the popular vote. there are several polls showing. >> obama: takingobama taking the popular vote. there are four states to look out for and it's owin. ohio wisconsin iowa, and nevada, and it spells out owin. this is a combination of polls up by five in ohio and comfortably in other states. he only needs iowa o nevada, just so you know. so when you look at the combination of polls nate silver is the guy who combines them and does an unique brand of analysis that has been very accurate in the past. he has 49 out of 50 states right in the last presidential ele
